Some people are frightened at the sight of insects, while others seem pleased to let them crawl across their palms. Generally speaking, larger insects inspire more fear than smaller insects. However, there is something creepy about the idea of an insect being hard to spot. Small insects can crawl on unsuspecting people without being noticed. Understandably, the possibility of having tiny insects crawling all over one’s body at any given moment is unsettling to say the least. There are plenty of bugs that are no bigger than a grain of sand, and many of these miniscule creatures dwell on or within objects that you probably use regularly. In some cases, you may see these bugs, but they are so small in size that you probably mistake them for mere dust particles.

Booklice are excessively tiny bugs. You have probably seen booklice many times in the past. These bugs are often found in between the pages of books where they feed on mold. Older books, especially ones that are stored in moist conditions, sometimes grow mold that is either noticeable or subtle in appearance. This mold is a favorite food source among booklice. Booklice are tan in color and no larger than a grain of dust. Some of these bugs even have wings. Booklice also commonly infest cupboards where they feed on mold growing on old food scraps or grain products.

There are not very many bugs that grow to sizes smaller than a dust particle. For example, assassin bugs possess body sizes that are a bit larger than a single dust particle. However, these insects are still small enough to camouflage themselves in dust. These bugs attach dust particles to their backs in order to hide from nearby prey. Once a tasty bug unwittingly stumbles upon a disguised assassin bug, the predatory assassin bug wastes no time lunging at its prey. This must come as quite a shock to unsuspecting assassin bug prey.


Do you think that it is possible to inadvertently inhale tiny bugs that are as small as dust particles?
